  • Gorgeous! Beautiful garden. Incredible views. A must see.
  • I love this place. It is my favorite to visit in California.
  • I thought this place was great for photography and it's peaceful atmosphere. The garden was well maintained and decorated. I've considered having my future wedding here. When you visit this place make sure to pay for parking or you will get cited. Just a tip for new on comers.
  • Amazing place!!! Very beautiful!!! So amazing it the best and most relaxing place ever!!!
  • Water was drained with very few koi the day we went.. I'm sure it would have been a lot prettier if it wasn't though. However, it's not worth it if you're coming from far, especially since it's small.

Where to stay in Long Beach

Most of Long Beach's attractions are near the water, so look for accommodations around East Ocean Boulevard. Downtown sits right in this vicinity, so you'll find plenty of rooms in large hotels, many of which have undergone recent and extensive renovations. For quieter environs with convenient access to the beach, look for cottages, houses, and apartments for rent east of downtown. Many of these offer ocean views. Naples Island at the east end of the beach is Long Beach's toniest neighborhood; the prices of accommodations here reflect this.
